This in-vitro study reports on a selection of mechanical tests on four wound dressings: Allevyn (Smith and Nephew), Biatain (Coloplast), Lyofoam (Seton Scholl) and Tielle (Johnson and Johnson). The aim of the study was to investigate these dressings in the laboratory by subjecting them to dry and wet compression tests, shearing tests and a cyclical test. As predicted, all dressings performed differently in the range of tests, with Lyofoam deforming the most when subjected to compression testing… CONTINUE READING
